yes he has to continue these medicines..In ayurveda, Hypertension is referred to as Rakta Capa Vriddhi and it sees the vitiation of vata and pitta doshas as the main cause..Mix 1 teaspoon of onion juice with an equal amount of honey. Take once a day for 1 week. Upon noticing improvement, continue for several more days....take sarpgandha vati twice a day...yogendra ras...akik bhasm works very good in case of hypertension....avoid salty diet...oily food...lower your stress...do pranayama early morning.....

Instead of medication, first try lifestyle measures like - daily exercising for 40-45 mins, avoiding stimulants like caffeine and decreasing foods with high salt intake like pickles, chips, chutneys etc (salt added during cooking is fine) and quitting smoking (in case you smoke) If after 6-8 weeks of these measures your BP is still high, you will need medications in addition to these lifestyle measures.
